Up for grabs is a rare Rolex Oyster Chronograph, nicknamed as part of the “Pre-Daytonas”, due to its production before the famous Daytona line. This Rolex Chronograph, the Reference 6234, was produced between 1954 to 1961, preceding the Reference 6238. This one dates to 1959, and has the popular 3-color layout, with outer tracks in black and blue against a white dial, and features the larger register style.
This Rolex Chronograph is in nice vintage condition. The case has been lightly polished in the past, but still has thick lugs, well detailed. The dial is very attractive, with some aging/patina, uniform across the dial, with a very nice vintage look, and no major scratches, dents, etc. The original radium lume is present on the dial, aged to a golden yellow color; the hands have been professionally color-matched to the dial. The watch comes fitted on a Rolex Swiss Rivet bracelet with straight endlinks, dated to 1964, and has 13 full links with light stretch.
